Hi all. It's me again. I want to get my hubby new gloves. He is a snowboarder and does backcountry as well.
I need advice on what gloves to get. Please help.

Personally, I tend to blast through gloves no matter of they're cheap or expensive pretty quickly, so I generally go with something on a steep discount. I'll be replacing them after 40ish days on the slope anyway.

If he's had them for awhile and they've held up well and he likes them, see what they are. Buy a new pair of those. Win.

Huge preference thing... some have cold hands and prefer mittens or lobster with thick insulation, some prefer light gloves. Some want short sleeves, some want long, etc.

I absolutely love my Hestra 3 Finger https://hestragloves.com/sport/intl/...ee-finger/100/ ones cos they feature my preferences: long sleeve, adjustable strap around wrist, warm removable liner, leather fingers n palm for durability. The 3 finger (also called lobster) is a good trade off between warmth of mitten and tactility of gloves.

I agree with Neni about the Hestra gloves, I got 3 pairs and they all work very well, and if you take care of them correctly they will last a life time. Sure they are a bit more expensive then some other brands but you will get it back by its better quality and durability. So Hestra is the way to go

Best regards,
The Swede

Hi Ludee,

We designed and tested a glove last winter that I think will work out really well for your husband. As a little random SBF kicker, I will send him a set, no charge, of course. Grayne Canyon Men's Insulated Snowboard Gloves with Touch Screen Tech Liner.

Please PM me the size he will need, your name and your shipping address. STOKED!



Find The Perfect Snowboard Gloves and Mitts Here!

Grayne Canyon Men's Snowboard Gloves :
Say goodbye to cold wet hands forever! The Grayne Canyon glove utilizes the latest in insulation and waterproofing tech with their Therma-fill insulation and hydrophobic waterproof exterior for 100% protection from the elements. To ensure you never have to expose your hands to the cold the Canyon features a state of the art touch screen compatible liner that allows you to answer phone calls, switch music, and text all while still keeping your hands warm and toasty inside the micro-fleece liner! A dual cinch cuff allows you to seal your glove with both a pull strap and velcro wrap, ensuring complete protection from loose snow! The pre-curved ergonomic shape of the glove feels like you're wearing nothing, while dual flex zones on the palm allow for complete dexterity. Finally a glove that you can wear while still having the functionality of a bare hand!

Liner: Touch Screen Compatible Liner
Use your smart phone or any touch screen without freezing your hands! The Canyon utilizes a state of the art micro fleece touch tech inner glove that not only adds an extra layer warmth and wetness protection, but allows you to use any touch screen without having to subject your hands to the elements. Select music, text, and answer phone calls, while keeping your hands protected from the cold! With conductive fingertips on both the thumbs and forefingers, you'll forget you even have a glove on!

Shell: Hydrophobic Flex Shell
The outer shell of the Canyon utilizes a special hydrophobic exterior for maximum water protection on even the wettest days while the interior wicks away sweat! Then Grayne adds a dual zone flex panel in the palm to maximize dexterity. The Canyon allows you to use your hands as if they were completely free while providing 100% protection for the elements!

Palm: Ballistic Grip Tech
The palm of the glove takes tons of abuse, and that's why Grayne uses a reinforced Ballistic Grip Tech palm that even runs over the fingertips! Not only does this maximize durability, but the non slip material also ensures you never drop anything on the slopes. Ski poles, cell phones, hot cocoa, the Grip Tech palm will keep anything your holding glued to your hand!

Membrane: Breathe Tech

A membrane designed exclusively for use in the snow, the Breathe Tech membrane works in the same fashion as Gore-Tex, but is designed specifically for cold temperatures! This state of the art membrane prevents moisture from penetrating the glove, while wicking away moisture from your hands. The result is a maximum waterproofing with tons of breathability, meaning your hands will never get wet or sweaty!

Insulation: Therma-Fill

Grayne's Therma-Fill insulation is a material designed for maximum heat retention while providing a lightweight low profile. No bulky materiel here, the Canyon is a sleek form fitting glove that will keep your hands warm in any conditions.

Cuff: Dual Cinch Cuff

Never worry about snow getting in your gloves again! The Canyon starts with a strong velcro cuff that you can tighten down and easily fit inside your jacket, or compress it around the outer cuff of your coat, either way you're hands are snow free! Then for added protection and a perfect fit, the Canyon adds a cinch strap just past the wrist allowing you to completely seal your hand away from the cold and and snow and ice debris! Keep the heat in and the snow out with dual sealing cuff of the Canyon!

Shape: Pre-Curved Ergonomic Fit

A pre-curved design allows the glove to fit perfectly to the shape of your hands! The Canyon fits so naturally that you'll feel like you're wearing nothing at all!

Soft Thumb Fabric
Soft thumb tech for an ultra smooth and plush feeling when wiping off sweat, drippy noses, or cleaning goggles! No raw skin or scratched lenses!

Warranty: One Year
One year warranty against manufacturer defects.

Any chance you'd want some patroller testing done on them? I usually use these gloves (Products Single Item | Watson Gloves) for patrolling and general riding now.

They're very wear resistant when handling board/ski edges, fences, tools, etc.

They're not so warm that my hands sweat all the time.

What they're really lacking is good waterproofing. So we end up applying a mix of bees wax and mink oil a few times each winter. Great for gripping toboggan handles too.

I'd love to have an all-in-one patrol glove solution I could promote to the guys/girls.
